Pacific Halibut are a delicious, light and flakey white meat fish. We drift for "Butts" in water from 230 - 800+ feet of water. This can make checking bait a bit of a challenge and tiring to your cranking arm. We do have some electric reels in our arsenal that makes this task a lot easier. You can anticipate catching Halibut from 15 lbs. to in excess of 70 lbs. The majority of Oregon Halibut caught are between 32" and 34" or 14 - 17 lbs. Generally these fish are fairly light bitters but reeling them up is similar to reeling up a flat sheet of plywood through the water column. It takes some work but the bounty is well worth it. The season typically runs from May - September based off of a weight quota set by the International Pacific Halibut Commission. Once quota is met the fishery is closed.
Our Halibut Fishing trips are $300 per person. Halibut Fishing trips run about 8.5 hours in duration. The boat can be booked for private trips that accommodate up to 6 for $1550. We provide the gear, tackle and bait. Fish cleaning is available for a reasonable additional fee back at the dock. We are more than willing to show you some tips and techniques to give you the basic skills should you choose to pursue these tasty treats of the ocean. We can fish up to 5 rods off the boat providing weather and current conditions cooperate otherwise we will fish a maximum of 4 rods. We have electric reels available.

A deposit of $100 per person is required to hold a reservation. To continue to provide services we must have a minimum of 3 clients booked for this trip. Therefore on days where we do not have 3 clients booked we reserve the right to reschedule your trip. If you have booked a trip and this happens and we cannot get you rescheduled, you will be issued a full refund. We do not want to cancel or reschedule trips so if we can make a trip happen we will.
Cancellations made 14 days prior to trip date can be rescheduled or request a deposit return. Cancellations made within 14 days of the booked trip can be rescheduled, during the same season, but deposits will be forfeited if accommodations to reschedule cannot be reached. We can and will do everything within our capabilities to get your trip rescheduled. We understand that things happen in life and we will work with you to get you on a trip, however, we cannot reschedule currently booked clients to accomodate a reschedule. If we are able to fill your cancelled reservation a full refund will be issued.
We reserve the right to cancel a trip in the event of unforeseen circumstances beyond our control or unsafe conditions. At that time we will be happy to reschedule your trip or refund your deposit.
